    Yes that report is interesting alright The12thDoctorThe12thDoctor !

    During the study period, the majority of accidents involved locals, and over half of the fatal accidents were between Tamworth and Gunnedah. No wonder they want to drop the speed limit between Long Flat and Walcha, some 200-300klms away from the black spot!
    Whats more, no motorcyclists were killed between 2008 and 2012.
    I love the recommendations section too. I wonder if any, other than speed limit drops and increased enforcement will actually be taken up?

    A the end of the day, the report is a load of shit, written by the state government to suit their agenda. The stats are used to skew the results to show what they want it show. Its not worth the paper its written on!

  13. Please click on the following to support a brave gay pirate as he struggles to find his testicles (petition). Have not been seen since he was a wee lad. If found, please return to Ulysses (reward offered). The science behind testicle loss is a bit of a buzzkill, but I encourage you to read up on the symptoms if you feel a loved-one is becoming a fag. Symptoms may include buying an overweight fuel-injected cruiser, reading road safety reviews and a sudden affinity with pirate symbols.

    Real Science is almost always countered with some more real science.The start of risky activities begins with your first breath and pretty soon you have your last so the never ending saving of ourselves from ourselves
    by lazy governments need's to have some resistance or we can just give up and let computers transport us safely from A to B as must be the final outcome if we do nothing.
  15. In other breaking news, 99.9% of netriders will die in the next 80 years! OMG! This internet usage must be a dangerous! Might have to ban it or slow down the speed of it too!
